I can't find a thread on this subject yet - if there is one , please delete this one.
The September Kingdom Ministry has a 4 page insert detailing the 70 alterations in the Revelation Climax book which is due to be studied at the Book study shortly. I'll provide scans if anyone is interested.
I will leave it up to more experienced analysts to examine the reasons for specific changes , but just a few brief observations for now:
P32 box - "they were completely exonerated" changed to "charges against them were dropped" - interesting change of terminology for the 1918 Watchtower Eight
P185 (28) "thousands died" in Nazi concentration camps replaced by "two thousand". Number imprisoned changed from 10,000 to 12,000. I know the various figures for this period given by the WTS have been well documented - maybe this is the definitive figure.
P277 (18) "Remaining anointed ones" changed to "if any anointed ones still survive" - change of thought?
References to Mt 25 with reference to the seperating work have all been deleted in various places and WT references have been updated.
Puzzled as to whether there has been a reprint of this book with the 70 alterations or whether all JWs will have to change their own copies , even the new ones. I'm just off to buy some more tippex......
